Last Friday, we set up the Christmas Tree. As soon as Halloween is over, I get the itch to start decorating for Christmas! Jon had to reign me in and give the stipulation of December 1st or the first weekend of advent, which ever comes first. With the destruction that Livi has caused to my beautiful Christmas tree this year I think I’ll be holding off on decorating a bit next year. We haven’t had any major catastrophes but the bottom two feet of the tree is very sparsely decorated now.
I was so excited to get the tree up and have a fabulous family evening. It really was all that I had hoped for… except that the dinner and dessert I made REALLY didn’t turn out at all 😦 Oh Well, it’ll make for some good memories though! We ate, drank and were Merry! Livi had so much fun. She was a little over stimulated but did really well. I think her favorite thing was the soft Nativity set that my mom has given us. She LOVES it and plays with it every day. She moves it from the bookshelf, where it should be, to the coffee table, to the floor and back to the bookshelf. It is quite cute. Once she went to bed Jon and I cuddled up on the couch and watched a movie. I love date nights 🙂
Yesterday we took Livi to see Santa Clause! The line up took much longer than anticipated and we where there for an hour! Livi tried to be patient but didn’t completely succeed. We got a pretty great picture though! Hat was not quite on right but she smiled, which is more than I was expecting!
